American Panel Van Monster Truck Kit

The RC Squash Van is a delightful addition from Tamiya, drawing inspiration from the charming 1950’s American panel vans. This unique model stands out with its polycarbonate body shell, replicating the aesthetic of classic vans, and it is perched atop the gear-driven 4WD GF-02 chassis. Unlike its comical counterpart, the GF-01, the GF-02 chassis takes a more realistic approach with its wheelbase and frame featuring ladder and pipe motifs. The motor is strategically positioned in a low, central location within the lightweight and durable monocoque frame, transmitting power efficiently to both front and rear wheels through gears. The long wheelbase and wide tread setup ensure stable off-road performance, making it an ideal choice for enthusiasts looking to navigate various terrains with ease. The integrated sealed gearboxes not only contribute to the durability of the model but also prevent stones from interfering with its mechanisms, enhancing the overall longevity of the Squash Van.

One standout feature of the RC Squash Van is its gear-driven 4WD assembly kit, offering a unique driving experience for hobbyists and racers alike. The inclusion of front and rear gear differentials allows for smooth cornering, and the low center of gravity motor position enhances stability during off-road adventures. The 4-wheel double wishbone suspension, equipped with four friction dampers, ensures a responsive and dynamic driving experience. Additionally, the Squash Van is 4WS-four-wheel steering compatible, providing enthusiasts with the option to further customize and experiment with different steering configurations. For collectors, racers, and fun seekers, the RC Squash Van is a must-have kit that combines an innovative design with timeless classic appearances!

This kit caters to a wide audience, offering an unassembled kit that brings joy not only to seasoned collectors who appreciate the nod to classic American vans but also to racers and fun seekers looking for a unique and entertaining RC experience. The inclusion of a 1060 Hobbywing ESC, a 540 brushed motor, and a comprehensive list of needed items for completion ensures that enthusiasts have everything they require to get started. Whether you’re a collector looking for a distinctive addition to your lineup, a racer seeking a novel off-road experience, or a hobbyist in search of a fun and customizable RC model, the RC Squash Van stands as a must-have for its blend of retro charm, modern features, and the potential for endless hours of entertainment.
